Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest card

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest card

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest card

Have to love the simplicity of this Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest card, stamping only anyone?  This card has been so popular on my YouTube channel, and I suspect it’s because of the ease of the design.

I created this card for one of our weekly color challenges and even though I had seen many cards made with the traditional sunflower colors I hadn’t seen any brightness.  Not to say it wasn’t out there… lol … I just knew I wanted color!

I started with an A2 base in Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The stamped  Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  After that all that’s left is stamping.  I will say I did quite a bit of “stamping off” before stamping on the final layer.  That way I could create depth of color with the same inks.  Remember to make your envelopes pretty!

Stampin’Up! Picture Frames Layering Squares card

Stampin’Up! Picture Frames Layering Squares card

Stampin'Up! Picture Frames Layering Squares card

This Stampin’Up! Picture Frames Layering Squares card was one of my favorite quick & easy to do cards!  I love the texture that the stitched framelits adds to everything you create!

This starts with an A2 card base of Whisper White cut at 5.5″ x 8.5″ and then scored and folded at 4.25″.  The Eastern Palace DSP paper is cut at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and the smaller Whisper White seaside embossed layer is cut at 4.75″ x 3.5″.

The DSP square stitch framelit die is 2 5/8″, and simply layer a quare framelit die inside.  You can run it through the bigshot at the same time and this creates a frame.  Use the 2 5/8″ square framelit for the pacific point square as well.  For this one, since the frame is smaller you will need to do the inside cut afterwards.  The oval stitched framelit is the 2.75″ one in length.

Pop up the frames and sentiment using dimesionals and attach the Fresh Fig Ribbon knot with a glue dot.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with Wreath

Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with Wreath

Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with Wreath

I love this Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with Wreath. The Brightly Lit Christmas bundle has that gas lamp Victorian era charm and there are many quick and easy card possibilities.

To make this Christmas card simply start with an A2 sized Very Vanilla card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″ The Old Olive layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  The inner Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.

Stamp the wreath on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then use the Big Shot to die cut the lamppost, Filigree arm, and wreath.  I left part of the arm unglued until I hung the wreath on it, then I used a dimensional to pop up part of the wreath for depth.

Here’s my Stampin’Up! Thanks a bouquet bunch card and video. Other than the framelits this would definitely qualify as a quick and easy card!  Very minimal stamping… lol…
